For the Love of Sketches

I used this week's sketch from For the Love of Sketches to create this layout. This is a fabulous new sketch site started by a very talented scrapy friend of mine!!

The product is from the July Treasure Box Club kit.

Quickutz Club July Cards

Here are some pictures of the cards we made in the July Quickutz Club Meeting at Scrapbook Mania this past weekend. The die we featured was a Cottage Cutz 4x4 Spring Doile. Lots of great possibilities with this die!!

Loved seeing everyone on Saturday!

Happy Scrapping!

Saying goodbye to soccer

We can now say we made it through another season of soccer. Both girls really enjoyed playing this Spring and I am so glad we chose soccer over softball. We were lucky to have some fun families on each team which always makes it even more fun for both the girls and for me!

Only two more weeks of school left! I can't believe summer is almost here! I am really looking forward to some lazy days....

Since my other commitments are slowly winding down, I am finding some time to scrap!! Here is my Project 12 layout from July 2010. Only two more to go now until I am finished with 2010!! This album is going to be so fun to have and I can't wait for the day when I can post my completed album!! Woohoo!!

I used the May 2011 Treasure Box Club Kit to create my July 2010 layout. This kit is full of American Crafts goodies so you know I loved it right away!! Pretty much everything I used on the layout came from the kit which is why I love these kits!! Makes scrapping so easy and fun!!
Thanks for looking and have a great rest of the weekend!

Fun Easter card

I received some new Cottage Cutz dies in the mail this week, so of course I couldn't wait to start playing!! I used glitter cardstock to cut out the Ornate Spring wreath. I really like the extra shimmer and texture you get from glitter cardstock. The papers are old We R Memory Keepers but they are new to me so they were fun to use for this card. Otherwise, I just kept the card pretty simple with the focus really being on the die cut shape.
Thanks for stopping by!!

Spring Break Mini Album

I am so excited about this project because I am actually scrapping recent photos!! This is certainly a new thing for me and I have to say I could really get used to it. LOL!

I created this mini album to document our Spring Break time at the lake. The girls absolutely LOVE the lake. They would move there I think if I would let them. They had a great time fishing, taking pontoon boat rides, hiking in the woods, playing kick the can, and just pretty much getting to do whatever they wanted!! Who could ask for more!

I used the March Treasure Box Club kit to complete this album. Love my TBC kits!!!

First 2011 Disney Layout!!

I am so excited to share with you my first Disney layout from our most recent trip to the happiest place on earth. I recently purchased a couple of new sketch books specifically to get me going with my Disney layouts. I scrap a lot of single pages for my regular albums, but when it comes to my Disney albums, I like for my layouts to be double-pagers. Sometimes, I have a hard time planning out a two page layout so I have found that I enjoy the creative process much more if I can kick start my scrapping with a double-page sketch.

For this layout, I have used the new Bo Bunny Blast Off Line from Scrapbook Express. I thought these papers would be perfect to highlight our pictures from the Space Ranger Spin!

Laughter has returned to my house!!

My sweet AK laughed last night for the first time since Monday!! Music to my ears! I think she has finally turned the corner with the worst case of Strep I have ever seen. She still has a nasty cough, but hopefully things are starting to improve! She is even feeling well enough to fight with her sister! ;)

Since everyone is feeling better (finally) I was able to get some scrapping done this morning and last night. I finished another 2010 Project 12 layout. I am trying to stay motivated to finish because I am getting so close. Just 3 more to go!!

This is my June layout using the December Treasure Box Club Kit.

Hopefully, one of my next posts will have all 12 of my 2010 Project Layouts completed! What a feat that will be! I need to hurry up and finish so I don't get behind for 2011!
